GetRouteCostMatrix

Description

GetRouteCostMatrix calculates the travel time and distances between an array of start and end locations and returns the route that is either the fastest or the shortest. The result determines the total time and distance of the individual routes (the route costs). For example if you input four start points and four end points, a total of 16 routes will be calculated.

The GetRouteCostMatrix operation also supports transient updates, that allow you to perform per-request based road network updates for your calculations. For more information on transient updates, see Adding Transient Updates to GetRouteCostMatrix
